NASB — Isaiah 52 — KJV

Cheer for Prostrate Zion

  1 aAwake, awake,
  Clothe yourself in your strength, O Zion;
  Clothe yourself in your bbeautiful garments,
  O Jerusalem, the choly city;
  For the uncircumcised and the dunclean
  Will no longer come into you.
  2 Shake yourself afrom the dust, brise up,
  O captive Jerusalem;
  cLoose yourself from the chains around your neck,
  O captive daughter of Zion.

3 ¶ For thus says the LORD, “You were asold for nothing and you will be bredeemed cwithout money.” 4 For thus says the Lord IGOD, “My people awent down at the first into Egypt to reside there; then the Assyrian oppressed them without cause. 5 Now therefore, what do I have here,” declares the LORD, “seeing that My people have been taken away without cause?” [Again] the LORD declares, “Those who rule over them howl, and My aname is continually blasphemed all day long. 6 Therefore My people shall aknow My name; therefore in that day I am the one who is speaking, ‘Here I am.’”

  Are the feet of him who brings agood news,
  Who announces Ipeace
  And brings good news of IIhappiness,
  Who announces salvation,
  [And] says to Zion, “Your bGod IIIreigns!”
  8 Listen! Your watchmen lift up [their] avoices,
  They shout joyfully together;
  For they will see Iwith their own eyes
  When the LORD restores Zion.
  9 aBreak forth, shout joyfully together,
  You bwaste places of Jerusalem;
  For the LORD has comforted His people,
  He has credeemed Jerusalem.

The Exalted Servant

  13 ¶ Behold, My aservant will prosper,
  He will be high and lifted up and Igreatly bexalted.
  14 Just as many were astonished at you, [My people],
  So His aappearance was marred more than any man
  And His form more than the sons of men.
  15 Thus He will asprinkle many nations,
  Kings will bshut their mouths on account of Him;
  For cwhat had not been told them they will see,
  And what they had not heard they will understand.

Christ persuadeth the Church to believe his free redemption,

1 ¶ Awake,¬ awake;¬ put on¬ thy strength, O Zion; put on¬ thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more¬ come¬ into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean. 2 Shake¬ thyself from the dust; arise,¬ [and] sit down,¬ O Jerusalem: loose¬ thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion. 3 For thus saith¬ the LORD, Ye have sold¬ yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed¬ without money. 4 For thus saith¬ the Lord GOD, My people went down¬ aforetime into Egypt to sojourn¬ there; and the Assyrian oppressed¬ them without cause. 5 Now therefore, what have I here, saith¬ the LORD, that my people is taken away¬ for nought? they that rule¬ over them make them to howl,¬ saith¬ the LORD; and my name continually every day [is] blasphemed.¬ 6 Therefore my people shall know¬ my name: therefore [they shall know] in that day that I [am] he that doth speak:¬ behold, [it is] I.
